We decided to try a half day textile weaving class on the day of my husband's birthday, and what a great treat it was! With incredible patience, our weaving instructors guided these two clumsy Australians in filling spools with the beautiful coloured silk thread, then helped us with the tricky process of weaving a pattern. It was a surprisingly complex process involving templates made from different combinations of threads and these women were experts at making our efforts look good. After we had completed our projects, each a glowing and beautiful place mat of about 50x30 cm, we sat down to receive a booklet about the craft centre, only to be amazed when a birthday cake was brought out by a group of staff, all singing Happy Birthday! This was a lovely surprise and a great way to end our birthday activity.
We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon, and the venue is gorgeous - overlooking a pretty stretch of the Mekong, with a wonderful garden and beautiful buildings. Recommended!
